Do you make more then your DH does? Just a question, DH and I had this conversation last night, he said that he feels like a failure because I make more then him by about 8k a year. He said that he is the one that is supposed to be paying the bills, and we are supposed to be saving my checks or that is our spending money. Which either way, we don't make enough to do that anyways! LOL

I did at one point, but my husband makes almost double what I make. He used to feel that way too when I made more.

I made more then my hubby when we were dating and engaged.  HE now makes $20,000 a year more then me.  I like it this way.

DH used to make more than me, but now the job that I am at, we make the same amount.  So it works out.  He wouldn't have a problem if I made more though.  Doesn't matter to us, it's both of our money anyways.

I used to but now that he's started working for himself, he's pulling in double what I make.  Guess who's putting the down payment on the house?  LOL.

My hubby and I both work full time, my hubby gets pay more BUT about 300 bucks to go savings/retirement.  So, what goes into our checkings is about the same.  Because he wants to use my money for the kids, spending money and for me to get whatever i want (im a New York and Co shopacholic), HE works 3 to 4 OFF DUTY JOBS. 

Hw may want to do that, I also have Ebay sales than bring extra every month but i use all the profits to go toward my kids college fund and/or savin accounts. 

he may want to do something like that

My husband makes a little bit more then me hourly but he also gets quarterly bonuses and I don't so I guess he actually makes a lot more then me.

I def. make less than my DH, but he is salaried and I am not and I only work about 25 hours a week. I imagine that I could make as much as him if I worked as many hours but I am willing to take the hit in the money dept. because it allows me time with my DD, and that is priceless.

I do and I don't. He makes more hourly but my checks are bigger b/c I don't pay child support. But he did go out and get a second job so now he is making more than me but only like 100 dollars more a week. It doesn't bother him at all, or well he hasn't said anything to me about it bothering him
